Hello,

I'm one of the authors of this report. It's the report of our end of year
project. It's currently not finished but I hope that it will help some
people.

With the work of Antonio Garrote, we made this WebID library:
https://github.com/magnetik/node-webid
It currently using a web service to translate RDF/XML to Turtle because of
the lack of good RDF/XML parser in JavaScript. I plan to change this after
the exam.
This module is published on npm:  http://search.npmjs.org/#/webid

I've just comited some change. Any comments are welcome.

Regards,
